|I was a big fan of their first one, but this one slipped past me when it came out. After hearing some songs from 3.V on their best of, I decided to pick it up, and what a gem. Their sound really matured on this one. Check them out at thedoor.com. sounds like there's new ZEBRA music in the works.

|Not my fave AOR band at all, but I have to admit they have a unique sound and that means something. But, as said before, there are many better AOR acts out there !

|Excellent CD. I love 'Can't Live Without' and 'Better Not Call'. A truly misunderstood CD given the success of the first 2. I love this much more but it did have to grow on me. Try it again and again.

|CD and song 'Better Not Call' are absolute all-timers! 3.V is nothing like their earlier works to my ears! The first two (especially Zebra 1) are way too rooted in letting Jackson's guitars do all the work. On 3.V, it's a whole group effort which produces that rare massive AOR sound where every instrument is working together at it's very peak! Of all the Zebra albums, for sure the one to have!

|They achieve a very full sound for a three piece, full of melodic twists and turns. Randy's siren vocals often pierce the sky, showcasing his ability to operate a few octaves higher than most others. On this platter we're treated to uptempo anthems, some quieter moments and a few welcome mid tempo classics as well.

|The only album of theirs that can truly be described as AOR
|From: Rob Babcock

|This one is Zebra's masterpiece! I like the others, but they've never equalled the magic of 3.V. Another of my 'desert island' discs, meaning one I'd pick if I could have only a handful. Until recently this one was very tough to find, but now you can get a very nicely remastered version on Amazon.com. Well worth it for fans of metal, prog & power pop.

|COLEGA PUEDE QUE LA VOZ NO TE GUSTE MUCHO PERO LAS ARMONIAS. ARREGLOS Y PRODUCCION SON DE 9 POR LOMENOS DATE UN TIEMPO MAS PARA APRECIAR ESTE DISCO BONITO. TU COLEGA MEXICANO BERNARDO

|This is by far the best CD in the history of Rock and Roll. How these guy's never became mega-superstars is a mystery to me!

|Posiblemente un disco que no guste o entre a la primera... a mi me paso, pero tiene la virtud de engancharte poco a poco y al final acabas pillandole cariņo. AOR con una voz peculiar y cierta originalidad en las melodias.

|How the hell Zebra didn't get on the map after this is a complete mystery and one of the injustices of the world if you ask me. This has everything, a Huge sound, Mega production & a truckload of brilliant, hooky, well written songs - 'Can't Live Without','You'll Never Know' 'Your Minds Open','Isn't That The Way' & the mega 'Better Not Call'.This album has steadfastly refused to leave my top 20 of all time for nearly 20 years, which for me, goes to show how good this really is!!!Fanbloodytastic.

|I've never been a Zebra fan at all, so I can't rate this one that high. Will even never make my top 1000 at all ! I don't like the vocals and the sound is weird or what ? O.K., I have to admit that their style is a bit unique, but I don't like it. Never understood why some people rate this band that hight. This time I disagree full with Jez ! One of the more average american AOR acts IMO !!!

|You said it -'A bit unique'. Some People like a bit of originality sometimes and this band certainly has that in their sound compared to alot of bands churning out the same old stuff time after time. Wouldn't say they were exactly an AOR band either, although this is their most commercial release. They always had that Led Zepp vibe running through alot of their stuff especially the last 'IV' album.

|Of their first three (classic) albums, this is the best one. If you loved their first album (or even their second), you MUST have this one. All the promises made on those albums are fully realized here. Fantastic from beginning to end.

|This is a awesome CD,a truly great one.A must have for sure from them.

|Siendo un gran disco, el problema que le veo yo es el cantante, que no es que sea malo si no que la voz no encaja mucho dentro del Aor, demasiado chillona, en la parte musical es un gran disco con grandes composiciones y brillantes melodias, aun asi tiene unas cuantas canciones buenas, Can't Live Without','You'll Never Know' 'Your Minds Open','Isn't That The Way' 'Better Not Call'. 7/10 http://paraisohardrock.blogspot.com/

|Bravo, marvelous, great compositions, its a shame why those kind of albums arent relesead these days. 9/10
||Date: June 18, 2011 at 10:09|
|Great AOR. Your Mind's Open, Better Not Call are melodic tracks with a fair bit of scatting.

|pretty good release by ZEBRA back in 86 in their own style and sound!gave it a lot of spins to get through it and that means that the songs arent catchy enough and i d say that you feel you hearing the same song!the quality of the band is there though and the musicianship is excellent!'can t live without','time' and 'you ll never know' are the highlights of this ok release!
